Do blackletter fonts correctly – and probably depending on language – make ‘ch’, ‘ck’, ‘ſt’ and ‘tz’ required ligatures? Otherwise a major use-case of ‘letter-spacing’, i.e. “Sperrsatz”, would break.

PS: Yes, there are actual web pages using Fraktur (or similar) as their main font, even if these are mostly fora for Fraktur fans.
